Kobay-crashi drives the 620R here (http://www.autoblog.com/2014/03/14/caterham-620-r-kobayashi-video/?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000588)

Enjoy!

Kobay-crashi...I don't see him that way at all. Seems to me he is like a Japanese Lewis Hamilton.

Liking the link!

Watch the Australian GP. He's at it again. I like the guy's aggressiveness but sometimes his judgment is suspect.

I like kobayashi, but I don't think he's got quite the talent that Lewis Hamilton has. I do have some pretty high expectations for Magnussen though...

Post-race reports confirm he had rear brake failure. He had a great start, and then braked at the same time as everybody else, but with no rear brakes, he was doomed. This was mechanical failure, and not driver error. Too bad, as that was a really good start which might have put his Caterham in contention for a points-paying finish.

edit -- Agreed on Magnussen. Looks to be the real deal.
As for the Kobayashi-Hamilton comparison, it was intended as a comparison of driving style and/or aggression rather than just talent, but talent would be hard to compare, as KK has never been in a top-tier car in F1, whereas LH has only been in top tier cars in F1.
